2.0.18.1 upgrade to 2.8.1 - Which versions to jump through?

Hi all,

Firstly many thanks in advance of any assistance.

I am helping a charity export a large forum that has not been updated since 2013 to a new hosting package. Using PhPMyAdmin, I have managed to recreate the forum on the new hosting.

Alas the version is: 2.0.18.1

I understand that the update to the latest version should be done in increments.

Would anyone be able to suggest what versions to cycle through? Or should I use jump stright to 2.1 then 2.3 then 2.5 then 2.6 before finally 2.8 and 2.8.1?

I determined that list of versions from: https://docs.vanillaforums.com/developer/installation/self-hosting/

Are there any guides (I have searched).

Many thanks.
